Black Christmas

Black Christmas

Directed by Bob Clark

During a festive Yuletide party, a group of sorority sisters receive a creepy call from someone who claims he’s going to kill them all. The girls soon realize the threats were serious, when one by one, they each fall prey to the mysterious maniac. After directing two relatively ignored horror flicks which later became cult classics (CHILDREN SHOULDN’T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS & DEATHDREAM), a Christmas miracle made Bob Clark’s 1974 classic a hit. A huge influence on John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS is frequently credited with helping spawn the slasher subgenre.

This horror classic about a killer stalking sorority girls on Xmas helped spawn the slasher genre.

Cast: Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder

The kind of horror movie that makes you question the director's sanity. A true original; almost every slasher movie trope was originated by this film.

Did this Canadian classic invent the slasher genre before Halloween? It's not as slick or effective as Carpenter's masterpiece, but it's a must-see all the same.

The way-too-damn-realistic nightmare that invented & perfected the slasher genre, and to think this guy went on to do porky's, A Christmas Story & Baby fucking Genius!
